Super long episode title befits a super long episode, and Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl have an awful lot to go over... it's July 2023 ReFlicktions and the meat of the summer blockbusters fall into this episode. First up, Dave kicks it off with the first of two Katie Heigl movies as he begins to finish a quest that no one should really ever want to do. #TwitterlessDrEarl does hit the Pretentious Corner once or twice, as Mikey dives into the Cannon Films schlock of bad Chuck Norris and the classic film of good Jack Lemmon. Both old movies and new are celebrated, and of course, the biggest of the summer - Asteroid City, Indy 5, Oppenheimer, Barbie, and MI Dead Recks P-1 all are covered here, as well as the guys' new Top 5.

Like sand through the hourglass, this is the Deuce of our Lives... because summer is whizzing by faster than you can name 14 straight Tom Hanks banger movies. #FanboySummer2023 rolls on as the latest loser winner guest joins the show -- returning Friend of the Show, Roth from Wyoming! Lots to get to on this show, including catching up with Roth and his latest ventures... then some birthday movies, including the incredible news that Seabiscuit is 20 years old! A brand new game -- Everything Everywhere All At Once Upon a Time in Hollywood -- makes its debut on the show, as the crew pairs up movie titles for points. Finally, Mikey, d$, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Roth give their favorite 1-2-3 Punch for actors... that is, which actors had the best back to back to back hit films, from double doses of Harry Ford to tripling up on our fave Katie Holmes ex... which leads to Mikey's own theme for the episode, in memory of Garrison Ryfun, of course. Stick around throughout the episode to hear about Roth's charitable work with RISE Foundation of Wyoming and how you can help! (Way too many movies to list their streaming sources - you can do your work this week)
It's the week that "Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One: Across the Ghost Nationverse" opens (already d$'s fave films of 2023), and what better way to celebrate this landmark film occasion than to talk about fave stunts in movies. And what better 2023 #FanboySummer Loser Winner Participant to have than Friend of the Show Revolving Part Time Co-Host the Pride of Albany, Georgia, Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G himself G Thang Garrison Ryfun join Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl to talk about it. First up, a quick, non-spoiler preview review of the aforementioned MI flick, from Garrison, who is out from under his review embargo (apparently he saw it at Wal-Mart? Dunno), then a round of Rotten Tomatoes, Jackie Chan style. Then, diving into the Top Five, the crew give their favorite practical stunts in movies, including pole fighters, plane droppers, backwards movers, sword fighters, hose swingers, Trans-Am jumpers, rapids swimmers, chariot racers, rain dancers, Bond cyclers, and EVEN MORE!

This time around, Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl catch up with Matt and his latest on both of his podcasts -- The Soundtrack of Life and Man-Child Movie Night -- before Matt leads the show into the 27th Big Bracket tourney... this time, to find the greatest movie role from the BMF himself, Samuel L. Jackson. From Matt's least favorite Tarantino film to the version of "H8ful Eight" that everyone should see to #TwitterlessDrEarl putting "The 51st State" on his to-be-watched list to Dave pimping for Carl Lee Hailey to Mikey trying to explain the Shaft mythology... 32 roles go in, only one can be a Bad M-F'er and advance.

We have no idea, but who cares... as per usual, we go with it and have a fantastic time doing so. Joining the show is the Rocket Man himself, Uncle Brian E, as he, Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl play a little round of ABCDeez, borrowing from fellow podcaster Doug Benson, as we use letters from a movie phrase to call out movie titles, figure out the theme and try to match up. Then, a series of categories, from "robots" to "time travel" to "realistic" and more, calling out movies in many of those categories, plus all the discussion that go with it. And Mikey met up with Glosson to see Petra. Not Pantera. Films discussed tonight: Films for rental only: Alien Nation... Another Earth... Blade Runner... Close Encounters of the Third Kind...

Her topic of choice for Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl is to recast... recast what, you ask? Dealer's choice. Find a major role, put someone else there and see if it fits. First up, the Birthday Movies, as we come to grips with the fact Ocean's 8 is five years old, Black Dog is 25 years old, The Great Outdoors is 35 years old and even more. Then a new twist on an old game, Simple Summer Trivia, as all indication points to another big win for Mikey, who usually dominates in this game. And finally, what happens if River Phoenix becomes Han Solo? And Harrison Ford plays Sam Spade? We get a rundown of Hilary Swank's career post Oscar, and what manic personality should have played Genie in 2019's Aladdin remake? After two weeks of First Timers in both FanBoySummer and on the show totally, it was time to bring a veteran to guest star -- as in, one time last summer (Ep 539) but now, the host of the Food for Thought Podcast, Melissa Reagan is here! Some recasting roles at the time the actors were hot, and some recasting by taking modern actors and placing them into classic films - all makes for a good discussion. And finally, somewhere d$ can drivel about his Snape complaints. Plus a bonus convo, with some real life "almost happened" roles from certain actors, including an unlikely pair that was considered for La La Land, a total near disaster for Forrest Gump, who could beat Viggo as Aragorn, and what if... just what if ScarJo wasn't the right person for Black Widow...
It's the 2nd week of FanboySummer and Mikey, d$, and #TwitterlessDrEarl invite in long time listener, first time on the show, host of the Harmanny Music Education Podcast the one and only Mr. Craig Holland... er, Harmann! After a little chit-chat, finding out about the podcast itself, the group plays the Soundtrack Sales game (boring title, exciting action) and #TwitterlessDrEarl likely never full understands it. Then, the guys give their favorite Top Five Movie soundtracks, each with their own stories and thoughts, from movies seen at Panama City Beach to lifelong friendships made in defunct movie theaters to pining for girls who never pined back to a love for Rowlf the Dogg. Also... Kenny Loggins soundtrack songs... Dr Earl talks about "Footin"... matching Jewel with Batman... and Mikey gets verklempt...

After a successful summer last year, a summer of the fans, a... FanboySummer if you will, we decided if it worked once, it's gotta work again, right? I mean, look at Zoolander Too! And Blair Witch Project! And Thor Love & Thunder! If we struck gold once, it's bound to happen again! Thus, FanboySummer Part Deuce! And in our first of 9 Fanboy Summer eps, we welcome in Jonathan Hile of the Captain's Logs & Lightsabers Podcast!

As the Big Bracket draws near, with Episode 600 a mere 17 episodes and a summer season away, it's time to crank up the entries... and what better way to bring in a plethora, a cornucopia, a tundra if you will of iconic roles, than to have a Mega Tourney with over 60 famous and beloved characters from cinema and film and movie flicker shows... But to do something so big, we have to have a big roster of Friends of the Show... Spawn of Ryfun, Lil G, Garrison.... the father of the Spawn of Ryfun, that being Scotty RyRy... and the pride of The Beaches of Cheyenne, Roth from Wyoming. Together with d$, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, they dive in to figure out the battles between View Askew and Aurora, Illinois... between dimwits and stoners... between classic duos both odd and slapsticky... And Garrison makes a surprise turn in his quest to see Ethan Hunt win the whole tourney. A betrayal if you will. And who knew these guys loved Twilight so much? Featured in the tournament: Harry & Lloyd Ricky Bobby & Cal Jay & Silent Bob Wayne & Garth Harold & Kumar Bill & Ted Romy & Michelle Tai, Dionne, and Cher Jules & Vincent Thelma & Louise Johnny Utah & Bohdi Lone Star & Dark Helmet Ethan & Luther Goose & Maverick Tango & Cash Murtaugh & Riggs Frodo & Samwise Legolas & Gimli Jack & Rose Johnny & Baby Forrest & Bubba Rocky & Apollo Qui Gon & Darth Maul Neo & Morpheus Marty & Doc Jake & Elwood Abbott & Costello Oscar & Felix Andy & Red Tyler & Narrator Dom & Brian Edward & Jacob
It's the end of an era in the MCU, as Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 has just hit theaters - and it's the last hurrah of the Marvel Cinematic Universe group of characters that link audiences to the Infinity Saga... sure, some heroes will carry over, but it does feel like we are saying good-bye to the MCU as we know it. But what kind of ending is it, and how does it stack up against the rest of the MCU films released since Avengers: Endgame? That's what the Deucecast crew aims to find out -- with Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl on the show, and Young Spawn of Ryfun, the Pride of Albany, GA, Lil G, but now he's a Big G, fresh off of his prom and headed to Senior Portraits, Garrison Ryfun joins the show to discuss and rank in their own top tens those very films. Starting with Spider-Man Far From Home, then to Black Widow, where the show picks up another guest, one Steve Glosson, who comes in to present his own list. Then the Shang-Chi, Eternals, Spider-Man No Way Home, then Doctor Strange & the Multiverse of Madness, with Thor Love & Thunder, Black Panther Wakanda Forever, then Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania, and ending with Guardians 3, it's a long discussion, but a worthwhile one. Plus, everyone but Steve (who questions as to whether he's seen it or not) also give their own quick review on Guardians 3 (SPOILER FREE, by the way). And stick around for the ending, which goes off the rails as usual, from who gets invited to the show, Mikey's dismissal of Scotty Ryfun's concerns, Punisher movies, TMNT movies, Cannonball Run Criterion Collections and so much more. And of course, Casey's Biggest Hits.
In a special edition of The Deucecast Movie Show, pulled from the weekly Deucecast Xtra, an all star panel convenes to discuss the state of the Star Wars franchise -- where it was, where it is, and where it's going. Joining the show tonight, the co-host of Good Day 4 a Movie Podcast, Roth From Wyoming...

Sometimes the topics come to the guys easy, especially when they fit around the guest so perfectly -- hence, we finally discuss our Top Five Fave Movie Coaches, as we bring on a returning fave and now a head coach in his own right, Clay Shaver! Clay lets everyone know where he's been, and how he's now a high school basketball coach. Then, some birthday movies, letting the world know exactly how old movies like Scream 2, Cop & a Half, and Soylent Green are... and of course, Ladybugs. RIP Jonathan Brandis. A rousing game of Denzel is up next, with a surprise winner in dominating fashion. Then, the Top Five Movie Coaches -- naturally you'd think football, or just even any sport, but leave it to dear ol' Mikey to make it weird. Plus, great discussions on this generation's "Caddyshack"... Tom Hanks being a great drunk... Gene Hackman and Jack Nicholson are old... and what might be the best bowling movie not named The Big Lebowski... Plus Coach Shaver let's the audience know why "Lady" is not appreciated.
